This report provides the documentation for a set of computer applications for the evaluation of antenna parameters. The applications are written for the Mathcad personal computer software for various antenna types listed in the thesis index. Antenna dimensions and, in some cases, ground parameters are the only required inputs for each application. No new antenna parameter equations were developed as a part of this research. The chapters of this thesis are intended to provide Mathcad antenna application users with the background information necessary to readily use and interpret the software for each antenna type. Appendices are provided with examples of each antenna application. Each application has an introductory paragraph and a table of required inputs. The Mathcad software provides various numerical outputs and performance predictions. as well as a graphical representation of radiation patterns in the far-field. Mathcad application results are consistent with the predictions of applicable publications, as well as other antenna numerical analysis programs.
